But Patagonia’s not the only stunning nature in Chile, and we’ll show you spots like the Lake District if you want to find a less-traveled alternative.

Up north, you can get lost in the Atacama desert (figuratively, don’t really try that) or head to the coast for some of the best beaches the world hasn’t heard about. Then, of course, there's Santiago, an international city rich in culture, where you can visit bohemian neighborhoods or hike to the top of Cerro San Cristobal.

Chile is an exceptionally diverse country, but with enough planning you can almost see it all.
